In this episode I take you on a tour of the Hermanus wine route on the R320 to the top three wineries, Sumaridge, Atraxia and Creation Wines. The Hermanus wine route is located 90 minutes south of Cape Town right before Hermanus town.
Our first stop is the family owned Sumaridge Wine Estate. Their mountain vineyards offer a variety of different wines. From the common varieties like Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Rose to a blend of wines like Epotome and Maritimos. The estate offers tasting and dinning from 12pm to 3pm.
Next we visit Ataraxia for a tasting in their cool wine lounge. They built their wine lounge to look like a chapel. We tried Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Noir and a delicious red blend that they are known for called Serenity.
Our last stop on the Hermanus wine route is Creation Wines, which has been awarded the clinque award which means they have the best food and wine pairing in South Africa. We tried some gazpacho, oysters and some more delicious bites.
Creation Wines creates a wide range of wines such as Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon, Pinot Noir and Syrah. They gave us a special tour of the cellar and let me try an aging Syrah my favorite.
The Hermans wine route features a total of 15 vineyards each with premium quality wines. This is a must visit if you are heading down to Hermanus from Cape Town.
